An object contains a value. A program creates an object either by elaborating an object declaration or by evaluating an allocator. The declaration or allocator specifies a type for the object: the object can only contain values of that type.
constant or variable of a specified type.
In an analytic workspace, a distinct item in the workspace dictionary. Analytic workspaces consist of one or more objects, such as variables, formulas, dimensions, relations, and programs, which are used to organize, store, and retrieve data. Each object is created with a particular object type and stores a particular type of information. Objects that are the same type (for example, three variables) can have different roles within the analytic workspace. See also role.
